SFMV members met recently at the Original Sub Shop to elect leadership and discuss future plans.
The leadership team, consisting of Paula Ross, Lucy Long, Michael Leizerman, Michael Szuberla, Amelia Contreras, and Katie Bibish, will be responsible for planning events and building a strong local chapter.
Future activities will include pot lucks, taste education including heritage varieties and ethnic foods, demonstrations and tastings at the Toledo Farmers Market, the Time for Lunch campaign, collaborations with local groups who share our goals, and more! We also hope to raise funds for worthy projects to advance the Slow Food goal - everyone should have access to food that is good for them, good for the planet, and good for those who produce it.
Outreach to new members is a key goal, and to that end SFMV member Gini Behrendt has created a Slow Food Maumee Valley facebook page where we will share information about our chapter and about SF activities at the national level.
As always, we're open to your ideas. Let us know what you think: firstname.lastname@example.org.
